Field Based Marine Mammal Observation

Gardline deliver a high quality Marine Mammal Observation course with a strong emphasis on practical work. The course supports students in understanding and implementing the JNCC guidelines for minimising the risk of injury and disturbance from seismic surveys, the use of explosives and piling noise while conducting real-time marine mammal field identification and observations. 

The three-day course is entirely vessel based and consists of lectures, practical observation time and practical identification, continuous assessment through form filing, role-playing and a final examination.

Upon successful completion of the continuous assessment and final examination trainees will be awarded JNCC approved MMO status.

All elements of the course are taught by highly experienced MMOs and Marine Mammal Scientists who are on hand throughout the trip to answer questions.
